Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 Collaboration Blog Hop! Our design teams have come together to share some amazing inspiration featuring Heffy Doodle and Inkon3 products, and there are prizes up for grabs, too!
This was the first time for me to try Atelier inks. They are water reactive, come in bold, bright colours and so easy to blend! I was playing with them for a while, trying different techniques to create this vibrant card. Let me show you!
First I blended My Jam Purple, Peacock Blue, Goddess Green, Bee Sting yellow and Marilyn red using an ink blending tool. The ink pads are so juicy that I had to be super light handed at the beginning 🙂 Those colours are gorgeous! I used them on Bristol Smooth cardstock as it is my favouite one for ink blending thanks to its slicker surface.
Then I took the Fancy foliage stencil from Heffy Doodle, sprayed it with Pixie Spray from Thermoweb to ensure it is not gonna shift while I am ink blending. I used the same colours just with heavier hands. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with a handmade shimmer spritz: in a mini spritzer I added Liquid Pixie Dust and spritzed it over the entire surface. It gave such a pretty sparkle to the pattern!
DIRECT TO PAPER
I also wanted to try how bold the colours are if I simply apply the inkpads directly on the paper without a blending tool. I even managed to layer the colours and got that stunning teal colour – that is my favourite! Ohh my bold colour loving heart was jumping! I used the Amazoninan leaves die set from Heffy Doodle to create a rainbow of different leaves and tiny flowers.
I cut down the background with an Imperial Stitched Rectangle die and also cut a tag using the Tag along die set. The frame and backing I cut from smooth white cardstock and I also cut a vellum backing to layer over the white one. It is not really visible on the pictures but in real life it smoothens the texture and makes the whole tag look so delicate!
I arranged the foliage, adhered everything in place. I used a chunky blue twine to embellish the tag and painted Liquid Pixie Dust over the flowers I also adde mini white pearls to the flower centers.
